Libraries are open!

Both Libraries and both campuses are open once again. Fingers crossed for no more freezing weather!

Campus Closure Extended Again

Both the downtown and the dental campuses will remain closed on Friday, January 19th. The rest of the weekend is a question mark, depending on water pressure.
